I was born in Shelbina MO, as was my father before me. I grew up in Pittsfield IL and Danville IN during elementary school years. I graduated high school from Tuscola IL. Dad was a Teamster, and his job had us moving too often!
Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Lord and my reason to live. He has forgiven my sins, granted me eternal life, and rescued me from an aimless and empty existence.
Through these memorials my goal is to honor my forebears. Patriarch: Richards, Edward [1678-1755]
of Manchester, Lancashire England and later Hampstead, Maryland.
On my mother's side: the Long family of Frederick County VA.
I welcome any and all communication from "cousins" and fellow descendants.
Anyone's corrections, additions, or suggestions are also welcome. My goal is accuracy and completeness of information on these memorials.
